After celebrating her “dirty 30″‘ an Atlanta songstress and an Oklahoma City baller confirmed that they were dating. Keri Hilson, who turned 30 years old last weekend, was spotted partying with several friends in Atlanta including rapper Wale and actress Tika Sumpter. One very special guest was apparently missing in photo ops however, Hilson’s boyfriend, Serge Ibaka.
Ibaka confirmed the relationship himself this weekend by posting the above photo with the caption “she had a good day.” Prior to that, Hilson and the NBAer were seen flirting on Twitter.

Prior to dating Ibaka, Hilson told EurWeb.com that she was doing her best to stay away from relationships with public figures. Noting that she simply wanted “love” the songstress said that a Hollywood relationship wasn’t what she was looking for. “I put a lot in that category — rappers, sports players, ball players and things like that,” said Hilson. “I would never say ‘never,’ but I want something real. I want real love. I don’t want this red carpet Hollywood love. I feel like they’re easily penetrated, and that’s something that I don’t want. I don’t want publicity. I want love.”
Fortunately for Hilson’s 6-foot-10 ball playing boyfriend, she’s changed her mind.
